    Manchester worker bee

    Manchester first started using the worker bee as a symbol during the Industrial Revolution and it became part of the Manchester coat of arms in 1842. 

    The bee traditionally symbolised the hard work of Mancunians and factories were sometimes referred to as beehives or a 'hive of activity' in the 19th century.  Today the bee represents a city united and is a symbol of both hard work and working together.
